Peace

Call on Mary with the faith and abandonment of a child. She will bring peace to your soul.

- St Josemaria Escriva

Wounds

The wounds which were scattered over the Body of the Lord were all united in the single heart of Mary.

Martyr

Mary was a martyr, not by the sword of the executioner, but by bitter sorrow of heart.

- St Bernard of Clairvaux

Salvation

It was through a man and woman that flesh was cast from Paradise; it was through a virgin that flesh was linked to God… Eve is called mother of the human race, but Mary is the mother of salvation.

- St Ambrose

Eyes

Mary always has her eyes upon us!

- St John Vianney

Grace

Hail, O Virgin full of grace; for thou wast always full of grace above all other saints. The Lord is with thee, because thou art so humble.

Repairer of the lost world

The pure holiness of Mary’s heart, surpassing the purity and holiness of all other creatures, merited for her that she should become the repairer of the lost world.

- St Anselm

Rescue

The Blessed Virgin, like a good Mother, seeing danger threatening her children, hurries to their rescue.

Lady, full and overflowing with grace, all creation received new life from your abundance.

Hail

Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! Through you came to us the Conqueror and triumphant Vanquisher of hell.

Important

Our Lady, Mary, is more important than the apostles, than bishops, deacons and priests.

Helper

Praise

Expand the bosom of your mind to serve Mary, prepare your heart to praise and glorify her, loose your tongue, and with swift service hasten to please her.

- St Bonaventure

Mother

It is not without a meaning, or by chance, that Mary’s clients call her Mother; and indeed they seem unable to invoke her under any other name, and never tire of calling her Mother. Mother, yes! For she is truly our Mother; not indeed carnally, but spiritually; of our souls and of our salvation.

- St Alphonsus Liguori
